DEAF CHILDREN IN NEED OF PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING Karen Goldberg, who is deaf and is a psychiatrist with the National Deaf Academy, addressed an issue regarding deaf children during the recent American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry convention at Chicago. She said:

Deaf patients with mental health problems face several hurdles before they can be properly diagnosed and treated

A major hurdle is communications. If the counselor relies on interpreter then it may compromise the counseling sessions.

A CATCHY PHRASE DeafDigest editor was spending this weekend at Elmira, NY. Driving through the city, he saw a business with this catchy phrase:

Hear to Ear

Unsure what it was – a hearing aid dealer or even a music shop, he surfed the web – and yes, it is a hearing aid dealer, a chain of stores in the upper New York area.

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

You are interpreting for a deaf person in the audience. You sit next to the speaker. The speaker constantly moves all over the floor, constantly blocking the view of the interpreter, forcing the deaf person to move his head around in order to get a better view. Yet the speaker does not get it and continues to block the interpreter!

A hearing person, seeing it all, swapped seats with the deaf person so that he can get an unblocked view even when the speaker still moves around.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

Because court reporters, realtime captioners, and CART providers have embraced technology in order to make sure their profession remains in demand, they now rely on technology to do their job.

Just like many other professions, on a daily basis captioners depend on technology that functions properly.  Their steno machines are no longer mechanical machines, but are computers with intricate designs.  They use laptop or desktop computers in order to translate their steno notes, and all the necessary programs must work in order to provide an accurate output.
